 A question for Mymantiz_John : Can I use the Venus eGPU without a graphics card plugged in, as a normal Thunderbolt dock? Will the power supply turn off  or sleep if the macbook goes to sleep?

 I have a 15″ 2017 rMBP running High Sierra 10.13.2

without a graphic card , Mantiz Venus will be a USB docking station and when MBP sleep , Venus slept too.

On your website it states "All international sales are final. No returns/exchanges." What does this mean? No warranty?

Hi John,

can I use the Mantiz Venus 02 with a RX580 alongside my MBP 15" with 750m dgpu on High Sierra?

What is your experience with the custom costs when shipping to Germany?

 

Thank you!

I just received my Mantiz Venus and have a possibly silly question. On the side panel vent, there is some clear plastic that is covering about half of the vent. Is this something we should leave in tact, or remove?

Just leave it, it makes much strong fresh air blowing into the the enclosure.

This is definitely one of those instances where a picture is worth 1000 words.

My initial inclination (much earlier in the day) was to say "hey, that sounds like it's obstructing airflow through the ventilation holes - remove it"...  Then I figured I'd best ask for a pic, or read the manual first.

Now I definitely would love to see a pic of this situation.

Thanks!

@xenonone5000 The 550W PSU in the Mantiz Venus should be able to handle RX Vega 56 cards.

Thank you!! Going to pick one and give it a try. I was going for the sapphire (Everybody thinks those are the best choice), but apparently they have a 3-8 pin connector and not sure how I could make it happen in the Mantiz. I am a long time mac user, but this is truly a new science to explore for me. So since that could not work, this would be my next choice. Really grateful for the help.
